The only bike I can take my girls out on the street with is put up for the winter so the one that wants to go has not yet. I have taken her for a spin around the yard on the dirt bike, though. She enjoyed it and then told me she wanted a pony instead of a motorcycle. She'll still ride with me, though. Works for me.

love this thread.

My daughter is 3 1/4. She has a BMW kids range R1100GS, like her dad. She calls it her pretend motorbike, as it has pedals. Her big bike, as she calls it, is a pushy with training wheels - kept of balance ofcourse.

She will let me know when she wants a PW50 or other, as shes been around bikes since birth, and just takes them for granted.

Nic.

I enjoy this thread you guy's(and daughters). My son is 18 now and has had every bike on the planet when he was young. Never had any interest as hard as I have tried and still doesn't. Football and basketball and he's a good athlete. Maybe I need a daughter. If any of you get sick of them send them my way. My luck, my wife would want to make a girl out of her

There are a lot of kids who need homes. We adopted an 11 year old girl from Russia 5 years ago, I have trouble remembering when she wasn't my daughter.
We tell her that Mama and Papa misplaced her for the first 11 years of her life. We looked all over but forgot to check Moscow.
One boy 32 and one girl 16, I'll be working until I die.

Heres my little shoogie, she started riding last summer and has caught on fast. She did 26ish miles two weeks ago in SC, sandy and whoops riding and she did awesome.

Not to keen on her growing up though.

This is one of her first rides last summer



This is her during the great Coastal NC blizzard of 2009, playing the backyard.



making sure the pups get their exercise

I've got two gaughters, one 6 other 7. They love to ride with me to shop or to my friend's house. Last time I took the youngest to the shop, (less than 1 Km) as we were coming back, I just felt her arms dropping below my hips. With my left hand I took her by the elbow, to keep it straight, and pulled hard so she can hit me with her body from the back. She fell asleep in that 5 minutes or so. I really got the fright of my life. She said she was fine, she can sit and sleep. I told my wife we must make dead sure that they're not tired after school if they want to go with. Well, to date I haven't taken any to the shops again, just to my friends house around the block.
I suspect mine will ride if they get the chance.

I'm sure this has been posted here and otherplaces, but here's something that I've heard good things about for bringin the little ones....(no connection) http://www.buddybelt.com/

I've also seen a belt system where you physically attach the pillion rider to you....but don't have a link

Buddy belt is a good set-up if your passenger needs a good griping location. As for actually attaching a child to either the driver or the bike, I think it is abad idea. The last place I would want my son is tied to a 500 pound chunk of metal as it bounced across the ground, and only slightly less so attached to me.

Terry, Ross' better half is writing this. This from the other side of the fence so to speak, I learned to ride from my dad and almost ran into the neighbors living room. One time when we were out riding dirt bikes, my dad said, "Put her in 1st gear and give her hell!" This as I was looking up a very formidable hill close to where we lived. There is nothing better than riding with my dad at the ripe old age of 48. I hope to have many rides with him no matter how long or short!
